Young People’s Concert 2022

Welcome to the 2021-2022 season of the Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra! With funding from The Priddy Foundation, McCoy Foundation, Wichita Falls Alliance for Arts and Culture and Texas Commission on the Arts, we are pleased to present the 2022 Young People’s Concert & Curriculum Program.  This brand new concert will be hosted at Memorial Auditorium on Friday, January 21, 2022.  The concert and accompanying curriculum have been designed for fifth graders, as many are making decisions about choosing a fine arts elective for the next school year. Music educators and students in the North Texas region are invited to attend the concert and take advantage of the curriculum program.  

This event is FREE for 5th grade students and their teachers and administrators to attend! We are also providing FREE curriculum for you to use with your students leading up to the concert! There is a limited travel stipend available if needed.

The 2022 Young People’s Concert ~ MUSIC & DANCE

The Wichita Falls Symphony Orchestra will welcome dancers from the Wichita Falls Ballet Theatre to share the stage this year!
The program will include the following pieces for your students to experience.

National Anthem
Hoedown by Copland
Huapango by Moncayo
The Firebird Suite by Stravinsky

Two performances of this concert will be offered at the Wichita Falls Memorial Auditorium on Friday, January 21, 2022:

  1. 9:30am-10:15am
  2. 11:00am-11:45am

As a bonus, if your students participate in the 2022 Young People’s Concert, they will have exclusive access to participate in our brand new art contest, Paint to Music! Students will have a chance to create a piece of artwork relating to the music on the concert and submit it to our judges. The winners will be displayed and announced at the WFSO’s February 26 concert, Music in Pictures, in Memorial Auditorium!

We are also organizing a Fine Arts Discovery Day (FADD) in conjunction with the concert that will be hosted by Region 9! This will give students a chance to not only experience a high-quality orchestra concert, but also explore different fine arts that are available to them, such as music, dance, theatre, story telling, and much more! The FADD will be broken into 2 blocks that correspond with the YPC. Your students can attend the YPC, then go to the FADD or vice versa. A detailed schedule will be given to those schools who sign up. The FADD will be held at the following address:

Region 9 Education Service Center
201 TX-11 Loop, Wichita Falls, TX 76306
